What Am I Doing Here?

This is my attempt to take one picture every day for an entire year. So far, so good . . . .

April 17, 2010

A bit of plumbing makes a late-night run to the hardware store a necessity.  Just for fun, I try getting a wide angle picture in the dark.  It was overcast, so  it appeared really dark out.  To be fair, it was also about 9.40p at night.
I will say this - there is no such thing as a single trip to the hardware store.  No matter what you are working on, the project will require at least two trips and cost a minimum of $200.

Something a little different - my phone (Motorola Android) has an app that will take a photo and convert it to ASCII characters (which I've always liked).  Along with the image, the app generates the HTML version as well.

I know this post is a day late, but technically, I took the picture on April 17.

A small tunnel of flowering trees on the OSU campus.  I was running both the SD4 filter and the polarizer, which may have been a bit much.

It's a flower!  It was a bit windy, so I took some pictures rapid-fire and took the best one.  I'm really happy with this one - it's pretty clear for hand-held on an old manual focus lens!

April 12, 2010

Ever since I started this little project, it seems that I spend a lot of time noticing my immediate surroundings.  At first, it was in an effort to find that 'shot for the day.'  This year, it seems that spring is literally exploding with color, and this is the first time I'm really noticing it.
I took this picture in our front yard; there is a bush that straddles the property line between ours and our neighbor's house.   I walked around the bush for a good 5 minutes, taking near 50 pictures of the little flowers at different apertures.

I baked up some cinnamon chip white-chocolate-chunk cookies today.  Lots of really good vanilla and cinnamon here - only thing missing was a tall glass of milk!
